This news is from a zoo. The zoo is in Texas. A giraffe is born there. It is a boy. He is 1.8 metres tall. He is 84 kilograms heavy. He does not have a name yet.

When he grows up, he will be 5.5 metres tall. He will weigh 1,360 kilograms. The zoo will open a new exhibit next year. He and other giraffes will go there.

Difficult words: will (in the future), weigh (be heavy), exhibit (an area where people can watch animals).
